Guided Engineering Academic Review Sessions (GEARS)
GEARS is a drop-in study group that is led by upper-year students. These groups allow you to learn, practice and study outside of a traditional classroom setting.
Engineering Communication Program (ECP)
The Engineering Communication Program (ECP) helps students improve their written and oral communication skills by offering credit and non-credit courses as well as one-on-one appointments. Online resources are also available. The ECP office is located in room B670 of the Sandford Fleming Building.
Sometimes getting additional one-on-one assistance from a tutor can help you better understand course materials. Your instructors may also be a great resource to help you connect with a tutor for a particular subject.
Math Aid Office
If you find you’re struggling with calculus or algebra, U of T Engineering has a drop-in math help centre to assist you (Galbraith Building, room 149). The Math Aid Office is specifically geared toward helping first-year students. For winter 2019, the Math Aid Office hours are:
- Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:10-2 p.m.
- Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:10-4 p.m.
Mentorship Opportunities in Engineering
The Faculty offers a variety of mentorship and coaching opportunities for undergraduates, which include the Skule Mentorship Program and TrackOne Community. Your undergraduate department is also a great place to consult for additional coaching and mentorship opportunities. Review our list of 2018-2019 mentorship opportunities.
